Description: Rainbow River – Rio Vista Septic to Sewer Project
FGUA is undertaking a septic to sewer project in the Rio Vista community located in the City of Dunnellon. The project consists of connection of approximately 333 septic tanks from single family homes in the Rio Vista neighborhood in the Rainbow Springs basin management action plan (BMAP) primary focus area (PFA). This will result in approximately 3,300 lbs/yr nitrogen reduction in the Rainbow Springs. The project includes 154 grinder pump stations, a sanitary sewer gravity collection system, a sanitary sewer transmission line, roadway restoration and upgrades to an existing lift station. FGUA negotiated project scope and fee with the selected design consultant, Wade Trim. Preliminary design for the project is underway. Final design is anticipated to be completed in quarter 3 2024. The project construction is anticipated to be 18 months with the overall completion anticipated in quarter 2 2026.
